More faces from the county fair

Another day.  Another batch of tomatoes sitting in a boiling water bath while I wait for them to finish processing.  I hope today’s canning adventures are successful.  I had a little trouble yesterday.  As the jars of tomatoes were processing, they were leaking.  The jars didn’t seal so I dumped them all out into a bowl and decided to start over.

I would take photos of all those beautiful red tomatoes but — would you believe it?  —  I still haven’t uploaded and looked at all of the Colorado pictures.  It’s not a lack of motivation.  It’s a lack of time.  And a lack of space.  My computer has run out of room.

I did manage to clear out some of the old photos and move them on to the back-up hard drive.  That should give me room for a few hundred or so of the Colorado pictures.  I hope.

I noticed this morning that the leaves on the maple trees out front are starting to fall and carpet the lawn.  It’s the lack of rain, I think.  We have had very little rain this month.  I am about ready to do a rain dance.  Hopefully we’ll get some rain from the cold front that is supposed to move through tonight or tomorrow.

That’s about it from the Bogs for now.  The tomatoes are almost finished.  I think I’ll make some salsa today, once I’m finished with the canning.  We’ve invited friends to come over on Sunday and will be having fish tacos.  Fresh salsa would be a good thing to have with those.

    Those images of the horse with the ribbons in his mane are so lovely.

  3. Tomatoes are great, there are so many things you can do with them.

    Good luck with the hard drive. Maybe it would be worth your while investing in an external hard drive or two, just for photos, to give you more storage space on the computer.

      Joanne: Thanks. 🙂

      I already have a couple of external hard drives but I am thinking along the same lines as you. I need to invest in one that holds much more. The two I have are kind of old and I noticed that the new ones hold much, more more than these two do.

    Love the images of the horses with the ribbons in their hair. So typical of a country fair!

    I love how the animal faces are sticking out of their enclosures. they look very sweet and kissable. They are making me think of the book I am reading called “The Zookeeper’s Wife”. It’s about a zoo in Poland during the Nazi times. Not happy light reading, but the feelings described toward the animals are wonderful. It’s a good book, even though it isn’t happy.

    Like your pictures so much, robin!

    Such great captures of the farm animals. Love the ribbons…someone took extra care.

      Thanks, Bo. I don’t think I captured it well but the way the ribbons stood out in the sunlight was beautiful. You’re right. Someone took extra care.
